> is just whichever event is emphasized and doesn't matter on pessimism vs optimism yes, that's the idea. Depending on what you emphasise, you can either end up with an optimistic or a pessimistic view. ​ >And I get it, it's not meant to be Naturell literal then why are you taking it that way? Sayings like this one often communicate very simple ideas, like the idea of multiple perspectives existing. Overanalysing the phrase isn't deep or insightful, it just means you're missing the point. And trust me when I say that it looks quite dumb. You're not demonstrating any kind of understanding, you only show that you don't understand how expressions work.

Right… it's all about perspective. That's the point.

I've always felt this way as well. I'm also the kind of person who points out that the Schrodinger's cat example is often misinterpreted, and people want to disagree with me about that too lol
